After our whitewater rafting in BC, we were pretty hungry. I picked out the Keg in downtown Banff for two reasons: 1) I wanted the Fam to see Banff; 2) My wife is Canadian and The Keg in London, ONT was a frequent dining choice back in the late-80s.
For those from the U.S., the Keg is a Canadian chain of steakhouses. The closest U.S. equivalent would be Stuart Anderson's Blank Angus. So we get there and get seated quickly. My wife was initially experiencing sticker shock at the menu prices and initially wanted to leave. I told her that was not an option. It is expensive. Maybe prices have gone up since the 1980s. But I capped everyone at $30 and we all got something to our liking. My 12 oz. prime rib was very tasty. My wife and son had sirloin steak. My wife complained it was too well done at the edges, but did savor the center which was cooked perfect medium. My daughter got something salady. She didn't particularly care for (I think it was too much onions or jalapenos or something). I guess I just don't understand people who eat salads as entrees.
Service was on the slow side. The tab was the most expensive meal of our vacation. But it delivered what Keg is good for - Consistently good quality beef.
